Remarkable Journey Premieres On UNC-TV N.C. Channel May 9

Our documentary film "Remarkable Journey: Founding the Asian Indian Community in N.C." will have its statewide broadcast television premiere on May 9 at 9 p.m. on UNC-TV.

Tune in to UNC-TV’s NORTH CAROLINA CHANNEL (Spectrum Channel 1276) on Wednesday, May 9 at 9 p.m. The one hour film repeats on Thursday, May 10 at 2 a.m. and 12 p.m. The North Carolina Channel focuses on civic affairs, issues, entertainment and educational programs relevant to North Carolina. Remarkable Journey, is a Video Dialog Inc. production that was completed last year.

Through lively first-person stories, Remarkable Journey explores the 'pioneer' generation of Indian immigrants to N.C., as the world's oldest and largest democracies met here in the midst of the Civil Rights movement and beyond. These energetic newcomers helped fuel the expansion of opportunities in science and business in our region, as they met the challenge of passing the "essence of India" on to their children.
